Alaska is breathtaking but service was so so

Let me start by saying this was our second trip to Alaska, last year we went on the Carnival Miracle and had a fabulous time. We had cruised before as well on Carnvial and Royal Carribean. This trip was nice but we expected an upgraded experience since Princess is supposed to be a step above Carnvial. I won't discuss the weather as it will never be the same and shouldn't be a decision if you ...

We'll I think the weather help on this cruise, sunny on most days and hardly a drop of rain. We had a 9:30 am from Ord direct to ANC that landed at 1:30 a little wait for the shuttle and a 1.5 hr ride we were on and in our room by 5pm. Getting on the the ship was pretty quick. The ship was very clean and spotless and room C210 had a nice oversized balcony. There is plenty of hangers and closet ...

Background: My husband and I are in our 50s. This was our first cruise on Princess. This was our first time doing an Alaskan itinerary. We've done four Carnival cruises and seven Norwegian (NCL) cruises. We went on this cruise with friends who are in their 60s. This was their first time on Princess. Pre-cruise: We flew into Anchorage the day before the cruise. We stayed at the Microtel hotel. ...

You would think that after paying over $10k for an Alaska CruiseTour that you should not have to pay extra to get a soda with your meal or have to spend $29 for a soda card, but not here. For "your convenience" they charge $11.50 per person (children included) per day for tips for the room stewart and serving staff. This works out to a total "take" of $250k. If this was shared among the entire ...

I have been on roughly 30 cruises, this is my 10th Princess cruise and my 6th doing the inside passage....I live in Alaska so it is a very easy trip for me, and I get to see many friends in the 3 ports along the way. This is my first time on the Crown. On my New England cruise last year, I was very disappointed in the ship, the food and the staff.....so it was with a bit of trepidation that I did ...

Unsafe and obstructed balcony among other issues

Every guest had access to our balcony from a large observation deck that obstructed our view. Very disappointing especially going through the glaciers. We were never notified about this in advance. We saved a lot of money to have a suite. People on the observation could look into our bedroom and living area. The only privacy we had was to keep our curtains shut. When we complained we were offered ...

We have done a majority of our cruises with Princess and this was our 4th AK cruise with them. It was our second time on the Crown Princess. We did a Caribbean cruise on her in 2011 and still consider it one of the best values we've had cruising. So, we booked the Crown again for 2014. It was a totally different experience and disappointing. First, the good. The itinerary was exactly what we ...

Given 3 weeks notice to book a lifelong dream of cruising Alaska, we made the best of it. We left our 3 children at home with the grandparents, and had a much deserved getaway, adults only, to Alaska. We flew from Florida the day before, and spent the night in Anchorage which was expensive. We then took a Princess charter bus to Whittier, where we walked off the bus, walked into the terminal which ...

My husband & I cruised on the July 26th sailing of the Crown Princess on the Voyage of the Glaciers southbound from Whittier to Vancouver. ABOUT US: It was my sixth or seventh cruise (I've lost track); his first. I've been on Royal Caribbean, Holland America, NCL and American Hawaii (RIP), but this was my first Princess cruise. We're in our late 20s with no kids, but we are not into partying or ...

Age 70s

The ship and the crew were not 100 % prepared for one of their first Cruises in Alaska. We took the land tour first, seeing Mt. McKinley and Denali. For the most part that was fine, except when our luggage was unloaded from being transported from Mt. McKinley Lodge to the Denali Princess Lodge, the luggage was covered in fine dust / dirt and damaged. Apparently no one had the foresight to clean ...
